My husband and I (late 20s/early 30s) spent December 8-15, 2007 at SMB Resort and Club. We traded a time share week through Interval International for our stay.
There are many pros to SMB resort, however, when they titled the name of this rental property they should have stopped before resort and club. SMB resort is really a condo about 1,000 square feet per unit, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, fantastic screened deck with super comfortable furniture I can't stop thinking about. It is comfortable and met all our needs. We had to find all our own activity, however. At several points I wondered if anyone else worked there except the manager behind the desk. There are no daily activities for adults and at night it is dead quiet. I don't know what would have happened if I needed anything (especially after 7 p.m.).
The location was fantastic. Rent a car and travel around the island - paid $200 US for the week with Thrifty at the airport. Coconut Joe's across the street has delicious food, however like everything on the island it is EXPENSIVE. We used our full kitchen at SMB to cook many of our meals. We paid $47 US for a case of Corona and over $50 each time we ate out including lunch.
We did 2 SCUBA dives with Don Fosters (across the street at Comfort Inn - $250 US for 2 tank dive for two people including BCD rental, etc.) and was amazed with Big Tunnel and disappointed with Fish Reef. The shop was very friendly and safe. Cemetary Beach snorkeling was truly like putting your face in a fully stocked aquarium.
Avoid Georgetown when multiple cruise ships are in and definetly check out Stingray City with Sotos. We drove all around the island in our rental car and ended up at Rum Point one day. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Grand Cayman. It is quiet and relaxing and the beach is beautiful. They do not allow you to bring food onto the beach so we packed a lunch and ate in our car. We did end up spending $20 on 2 drinks that were so-so. The scenery made up for it.
Of all the Carribean islands we've visited, this was by far the cleanest, safest and most American-ized. You will not find impoverished towns around your resort. It is all well kept up and mostly repaired from Hurrican Ivan. I would visit again. Enjoy your stay!
